That number and the Fiserv Forum don’t jive well.

FYI - The proper word is "jibe" not "jive".

This Auburn/Murray State game is a good one. Defense optional but both teams are going back and forth and hitting tough shots.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

And now Murray State has cooled off but Auburn is just hitting everything. I hadn't watched them yet this season and wasn't impressed, but these last few minutes have been good

I think we move up a few.  I think 16-17 but thinking 17.

15, right ahead of UW-Madison at 16. 
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

Don't think we are going to move up much......pass Buff probably miss state...UW was way ahead of us in votes......we aren't going to pass them I don't think.

Would have passed ASU but not now.....not passing Kentucky. Or Texas Tech with only loss being a competitive game vs Duke.

18. Disappointing since we looked a hell of a lot better this week than the teams in front of us. ASU gonna get a huge boost despite getting absolutely CRUSHED by a mediocre Vandy team.
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

18 at best is what I think as well. Idk if we are getting much respect on the national stage yet which is mind-boggling. Currently Lunardi has us a 6-seed on the 21 Dec Bracketology. But still has buffalo as a 3-seed. That guy is kinda always out to lunch but even Kenpom still has us as #30 and Butler as #29!

Lunardi does Bracketology only once a week this early in the season....Typically Tuesdays.....No one except Buffalo lost....I think we move up to 18.....That's OK.....I would rather be under the radar.....For now.....

have they had a chance to make adjustments yet based on weekend play?  Az. state had to have jumped following their upset of #1 kansas, and quite possibly made our ascension a little more difficult

  after MU, i've adopted bobby hurley's team as my sloppy 2nd fav, but seemed like kansas got a little jobbed down there in tempe...and that's...ok

This is the kind of week where the polls could be completely reordered. Usually you can guess based on who lost and who won big games but too much happened right around us in the polls. I'm guessing we end up 17.

KenPom's site just runs the numbers and they are what they are. No judgement call involved

After iMU beats #14 Buffalo by double digits, Gary Parrish  ... drops us out of the top 25.
On the other hand, after its big win over Grambling (KenPom #281) Wisconsin moves up a spot.
Wut?

Parrish is a buzz cronie. Not surprised by that. Isn’t he the one that does “poll attacks” where he criticizes others polls?

I know I have Blue and Gold colored glasses on but I just don’t see how this is not a top 15 team.

It doesn’t really matter in the long run but three top 15 wins over the last 10 days should equal a top 15 ranking in my book.

What has Wisconsin done to earn their spot in the rankings? Comparing resumes I just don’t see it.

I guess they need to keep winning and eventually somebody will notice.

I think we'll be right on the verge of the top 15, I'm guessing 16 or 17.  Obviously, none of this matters though.  I think around this time last year wasn't ASU ranked #1?  They went on to be a bubble team.

If I had to guess why some voters are not giving us the respect we feel we deserve is probably because our big W's are at home and we are outside the top 25 on KenPom.  Many writers these days are big KenPom followers and we rank 30 there, despite the big W's.

Also, I understand the UW hate but they probably deserve a ranking right in the same area as us.  They have some solid wins- NC State, Oklahoma, Iowa- and their only losses are against Virginia and road game to us- in OT.  Very similar resumes if we're being honest.  Other rankings like KenPom, NET, Sagarin like UW a bit more than us, which is probably why voters are ranking them higher.

Jumping or leapfrogging teams in the polls is faily uncommon.  Seems you have to beat a top 5 team is the only way you leapfrog teams to any significant degree.  Ascension innthe polls is a factor of continuing to win as those teams directly ahead of you lose.  Right or wrong its how it has historically worked.  I have no issue with being “underranked” (not sure that we are) as id prefer not to have that much of a bigger target on our back as we go out on the road in the BE
Political free board, plz leave your clever quips in your clever mind.

I'd love to see one of those blind side by side resume comparisons between MU and Wisconsin

Marquette:

Home: 9-0

Group 4: 6-0
Top 5 wins: WIS (#5) vs UL (#17) BUFF (#20) KSU (32), PRES (#195)
Worst losses: vs KU (#4) @IND (#18)

Wisconsin:
NET: 5

Scoring Margin: +14.9
Home: 6-0
Away: 2-1
Neutral: 2-1

Yeah....their resume kicks our resume's arse and its not close. Not the team ahead of us that people should be complaining about.
